In pursuit of plants

Eden Project trip

Upper Two pupils travelled to The Eden Project this week as part of their Science studies.

Weather forecasts had not been good but the pupils arrived to brilliant sunshine and fantastic views of the project.

The pupils were put in different tribes and assigned the task of how best to survive and prosper in the rainforest.

Pupils decided on their tribal markings then entered the Rainforest Biome. Each tribe looked for plants to help with shelter, water, food and medicine.

Science Coordinator Richard Pidwell said the pupils did very well and had the exciting surprise of meeting the founder of the Eden Project, Sir Tim Smit, and educationalist, Sir Kenneth Robinson.

After exploring the rest of the Eden Project the pupils travelled home - tired but wiser and with a far greater understanding of plants and their importance.
